Beneteau Oceanis Yacht 54 - Exclusive trims and easy movement aboard

by Julien Ferre 20 Feb 03:13 PST

The Oceanis Yacht 54, younger sister of the Oceanis 62, embodies the innovation that has always been a hallmark of the Beneteau brand, while continuing to remain loyal to the Yacht range ethos: elegance, luxurious accommodations, and unrivaled performance.

Capitalizing on experience gained with the enormously popular Oceanis range, as well as the trend-setting new First Yacht 53, her architects, Roberto Biscontini and Lorenzo Argento, have created a masterpiece that seamlessly blends form and function into a yacht that is exhilarating under sail, easy to shorthand, and comfortable both at sea and in port.

The Oceanis Yacht 54 paves the way for a new generation of cruisers by completely reinventing the traditional central cockpit into a space that allows for free flowing movement, ample seating areas, and safety throughout. The yacht features cutting-edge technology such as Ship Control (a simple interface that accesses all the boat's systems); Dock&Go (joystick harbor-side maneuvering); and Harken's AST (automatic sail trimming), all of which firmly set BENETEAU at the vanguard of the industry and meets passionate sailors' high levels of expectations.

An innovative cockpit layout making movement easy and safe

By incorporating a standard feature of the Oceanis range - the mainsail arch - the OY54's cockpit is completely open, allowing for intuitive movement, comfort, and space; indeed, the flush cockpit occupies more than a third of the full deck area. Passage from the companionway down the centerline to the side-decks is absolutely unimpeded, and transit to the foredeck is made safe by the boat's high bulwarks and lifelines, as well as the generous width of the catwalks.

Access to the sea is provided by the expansive swim platform, which, once deployed, reveals the space below the cockpit to stow away a 2.4 m inflatable tender. Cruising really comes into its own on the Oceanis Yacht 54, with all sheets and halyards run aft of the cockpit seats, leaving a clean area for rest and relaxation. The sunpad on the foredeck is likely to be the most popular spot on the boat!

Easy manoeuvres with "Easy Sailing"

To simplify manoeuvres both at the harbor and under way, BENETEAU has equipped the Oceanis Yacht 54 with the invaluable Easy Sailing navigational aids. Ship Control is standard on the yacht and provides user-friendly intuitive control of all the boat data and components (batteries, tanks, engines, lighting, etc.). The well-proven Dock & Go system is also available to facilitate engine-powered manoeuvres in a limited space, using a straightforward joystick control which operates a bow drive and a 360 degrees rotating saildrive pod. You can use the amazing Harken AST (assisted sail trim) to trim the sails automatically in line with the apparent wind and trim the jib when you need to change tack. The AST system is controlled from a display in the cockpit.

The Oceanis Yacht 54, destined for the cruising life, is available with two different draughts (2.5m as standard, 1.95m on option) and two types of masts (standard or in-furling). In both cases, Easy Sailing will make all manoeuvres much easier, so that the crew can focus on the real pleasure of sailing.

Light oak or walnut interior with three cabins

Lorenzo Argento's watchword in designing this yacht was to create a warm modern atmosphere with as much natural light and ventilation as possible. The Oceanis Yacht 54's interior layout offers a chart desk and large saloon table which easily accommodates six adults. The interior can be built in two different wood tones, light oak or the more traditional walnut.

In terms of layout, two versions are available: three cabins and two heads, or three cabins and three heads with an extra-large forward master cabin, in which it is easy to walk around the double bed (1.6 m wide). The trim show great attention to detail, such as the top quality upholstery, wood linings, riddles and lighting, making this 17 m sailing yacht ideal for cruising.

Lastly, the numerous storage areas have been optimized: tanks and service areas are easily accessible and their location has been studied to improve weight distribution, illustrating that every detail of Oceanis Yacht 54 has been meticulously thought out to ensure that the crew is one with the craft and the sea.
